The project is an introduction to the management of the satellite platform in terms of communication, electronics (digital and analog), power management, thermal management). It is based on the use of realistic, low-cost models of 2U cubesats, including all the functions of the nanosatellite, including:

  • On Board Computer, CPU
  • Communication cards
  • RF frontend card
  • Power management cards
  • Sensors
  • GPS
  • Inertial unit
  • Payload cards (camera)
  • Solar panels

Nowadays, with the emergence of new space technology, to stay competitive in the space industry, students need to develop an expertise and knowledge in the fields of business and law. This interdisciplinary course will combine technical with law and business aspects of satellite communication systems. Students will submerge themselves into an interdisciplinary work environment and collaborate with other students from either a law or technical background. They will work together to solve problems in teams, which is also an asset from the societal point of view.

For the technically educated students, the courses are eye-opening in presenting the regulatory and business aspects of space activities. For the law students, the exchange with the technically trained students is enriching as they will cooperate with technical experts in the practice and must at least understand the problems which they are expected to solve. For both groups, the business aspect of satellite communications systems will be new and enlarge their competences. The interdisciplinarity of the course is a simulation of situations in a real employment world.

Our goal is to build the bridges between the different fields to reach a common goal and break the silos of traditional work environments.

Mechatronic space structures require particular solutions in terms of their efficiency, robustness and precision for equipment which is required to operate for several decades without maintenance. In this context the piezoelectric technology associated with particular material properties can bring multidomain solutions for actuation, mechanical insulation, or energy harvesting. New opportunities in terms of dynamical mechanical response are brought by elastic metamaterials.

Metamaterials are a new class of materials that exhibit extraordinary properties. In the context of dynamics, they can display negative effective mass and/or stiffness, extending the classical design space of engineering materials. Therefore, they can be very attractive for designing high-performance multipurpose devices.

In this course students will learn about applications of elastic metamaterials for various mechatronic space devices, in particular energy harvesters, actuators, sensors and electro-mechanical transformers; and how metamaterials can be designed and used for substantially improving dynamic properties of these systems. students will have an opportunity to design a device - from theoretical principles to simulations - prototyping it and performing its physical electro-mechanical testing.

The course is composed of 8 classes in which we present the necessary theoretical and practical background, followed by a 4-class students’ project oriented on designing, assembling and testing a prototypical device. Finally, students are involved in an industry-level project supported and supervised by top-class experts from the space sector.

The course proposed here will focus on the economic impact of weather and the cost associated with climate change. Initially, scientific generalities on meteorology and climate will be described in order to provide students with main concepts and basic knowledge on the subject. A focus on the polar regions, where the impact of climate change is a strong marker of the phenomena, will be provided to highlight the effects of human activities on climate.

Following this, the economical dimension will be addressed and this course will focus essentially on two aspects. The first aspect addressed is the risk management of weather-sensitive activities and the second part will focus on the understanding of the economic aspects of climate change.

The final target is to give students the capacity to understand climate issues, to understand and assess the associated public policies and to take appropriate decisions in their personal and professional activities.

To address these questions, this course consists of lectures given by experts of ENM, Lulea University and Toulouse Business School, active learning and personal projects requiring an answer by students to a problem elaborated by an expert of socio-economic activities.

Arctic Winter School is an introductory course for students from different academic fields and from all UniversEH partner universities that gives insight into the interdisciplinary fields of Arctic space, environment and culture:

  • Environment and society in the changing Arctic. The Arctic Five collaboration.
  • Polar atmosphere and its significance for solar-terrestrial interactions, space weather.
  • Auroral physics and observations.
  • Optical phenomena in the polar regions.
  • Snow and ice in different perspectives.
  • Arctic climate systems and climate change.
  •  Nano satellites and balloons for polar research.
  • Product innovation for Arctic space.
  • Terminology for New Space and polar research, linguistic aspect of intercultural communication.
  • Survival in the cold environment. 
The 1st week of the School is taking place at Luleå University of Technology, Kiruna Space Campus and includes lectures and workshops. During the week in Kiruna there will be study visits to Esrange Space Center, the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) and EISCAT Scientific Association. The week will also include study visits to Abisko Scientific Research Station, LKAB iron ore mine, ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi. There will be both cultural and social activities.

The learning outcomes are assessed through assignments, workshops and project.
